Xbox One Is Getting Alexa Support

Today, an announcement on Xbox Wire revealed that Xbox One is getting Alexa support. With a new feature called Xbox Skill, users will be able to use Cortana or Alexa to issue commands to their Xbox Ones.

Xbox Skill works with any Cortana or Alexa-enabled devices, such as a Windows 10 PC, Amazon Echo or Cortana or Alexa apps on iOS and Android. To find a full list of commands, simply say “Ask Xbox what can I say?” and you’ll get all the options available.

Here’s how you can get started, according to Xbox Wire:
If you use Cortana:
  • Sign into the Xbox you want to control.
  • On your Windows 10 PC, click here and sign in with your Microsoft account to link the skill.
  • Try your first command! “Hey Cortana, tell Xbox to open Netflix.”
If you use Alexa
  • Sign into the Xbox you want to control.
  • Click here, sign in with your Amazon Account, and click Enable.
  • Sign in with your Microsoft account to link the skill.
  • Let Alexa discover your console, then follow the instructions to pair your console with Alexa.
  • Try your first command! “Alexa, start Rocket League.”

It’s interesting to see this all come about, considering the original focus on voice commands for the Xbox One at the start of this generation. Cortana and Alexa voice command support is available for certain Xbox Insiders right now and will be coming out for everyone at a later date.
